As well, the parties discussed possibilities for trilateral cooperation, e.g. in cooperation with the universities of Latin America.
The meeting will result in working out a detailed cooperation road map in the nearest future. Cooperation plans will include the new horizons such as joint educational programs including PhD programs, Erasmus+ Mobility programs as well as participating in Erasmus+ Capacity Building projects.
Among the possible field of cooperation the parties paid special attention to joint Master’s Degree programs and developing the Spanish language programs. There are not a big variety of educational programs taught in English and the parties discussed opportunities of developing programs with the specialized Spanish language course at the beginning of the educational program at UPM.
